How was the first Almaty cotton combine created?
The first cotton combine was built in 1961. However, working on it was not easy. Vehicles with building materials were driving around the workshops, and workers sometimes had to step aside from their machines and help with the decoration of the premises in which they were to work. Construction chaos subsided only in 1970, when the second spinning-weaving and decorating factory was built. For more information, see this flashback release.
